furniture does not try to define the difference between
art and craft. It exists quietly between the two."
John Dodd's pieces have a two-fold purpose. Beautiful
in themselves, they are also backdrops for beauty, especially
those in the series called "Foyer Greetings."
Designed to display precious objects or living flowers
that might brighten up an entryway, or any small space
is a lifelong interest of John's; you can see it in
the structure of his pieces. The work is simple, timeless,
wood and unusual veneers are combined with granite and
concrete, glass and mirror — unexpected and harmonious.
Pieces you can use but also objects you can contemplate
and appreciate for their own sake. Somewhere between
art and craft
